Marvin® Windows and Doors Presents Passive Building Solutions and Contemporary Designs at National AIA Convention

Company's unparalleled design flexibility allows for ultra energy efficiency and capability to accommodate larger sizes

WARROAD, Minn. – Marvin Windows and Doors will be at the national AIA Convention in Chicago, June 26 to 28, 2014, to display their wide range of products and capabilities. As a made-to-order window and door company, Marvin is beloved by architects for their ability to work with any kind of project regardless of size, architectural style or energy efficiency needs.

On display at this year's AIA show, Marvin will showcase the company's latest innovation--Passive Building solutions. A great option for architects seeking a handcrafted in America passive solution from a trusted name and reliable company, Marvin's innovative passive solutions combine the beauty of warm wood interiors with exceptional performance, all backed by a century-old heritage of quality and service. A key consideration in passive design, windows recognized by the Passive House Institute U.S. (PHIUS) need to meet rigorous standards for ultra energy efficiency. Marvin uses its highly knowledgeable Signature Services team to work with architects to create a Passive Building plan with windows from the Ultimate Casement, Ultimate Awning or Direct Glaze products.

Since Marvin's products are handcrafted in America, they offer architects a shorter lead time than the European manufacturers who were previously the only choice for passive windows.

Another industry-first product that can be used as a complement to Marvin's passive windows, automated exterior shades are fully integrated, fully retractable and fully concealed. Unlike current exterior shading systems, Marvin's new patent-pending shading solution uses no bulky add-ons and can be programmed to automatically provide exactly the right amount of light or shading 24 hours a day. The smart technology allows architects to spec a product that can give a precise shading position for optimal energy management, privacy, and mood.

Marvin will also be showcasing its vast contemporary design capabilities. As the leader in providing high-quality products and services for every window and door need, Marvin has once again upped the ante when it comes to contemporary design. With the launch of six new offerings to its contemporary line, Marvin has the minimalist look leveraging warm wood interiors that will bring a fresh, modern look to any home.

"Architects are incredibly influential and visionary," said Christine Marvin, Director of Marketing. "They are some of the most in-the-know people in the industry when it comes to design trends and creative solutions to meet their customer's needs, so serving their needs is a major focus for us. AIA is a wonderful opportunity for us to connect one-on-one with architects to not only show our products, but also have conversations about what projects they are working on where Marvin can be a solution."

Marvin Windows and Doors will be in booth 1031 at the AIA Convention. The convention will be held at McCormick Place at 2301 S. Martin Luther King Dr. in Chicago.
